As FavoriteBoy and I continue sorting through his old papers from high school, I find myself occasionally wondering how that tall, literal teenager found himself successful, loved by all his teachers, and a National Merit Scholar to boot. One of his History Study Sheets asks the question, What did Hus mean when he said, "To rebel against an erring pope is to obey Christ?" Nathan's answer:
"This is a literal statement, and the meaning is obvious."
We were so different in our approaches to school work! I remember that in high school I would never write just one sentence if thirty would serve to better explain a topic. Obviously Nathan took quite a different approach!
